About the event

A displaced persons camp that’s become a town. Sami’s lived here so long he can barely remember his real home. One night he wakes up at the end of his tether. He stakes his dignity on learning the tuba, little knowing he’s set out on a path that will lead him to attending his own funeral…

Belvoir’s Artistic Director Eamon Flack brings all his trademark inventiveness and humour to this free-wheeling show, together with an ensemble cast of Belvoir favourites and fresh new talent and starring the astonishing Yalin Ozucelik. This is a mad-cap celebration of life and the uncrushable desire to live it.

Don't miss the world premiere of Sami in Paradise, based on The Suicide by Nikolai Erdman.

"Extraordinarily clever production"


"A madcap dark comedy with a healthy (and subtle) dose of pathos"
